Imagine Monday!

Hi everyone! Welcome to Imagine Monday hosted by Erica at My Cricut Craft Room. If you would like to see other projects made using the Imagine, or an Imagine cartridge with the E2, please head over the Erica's blog and check out what the other design team members have made today!

My project to day is a birthday card for my Mother-in-law! She loves to sew, so I knew this card would be a hit!

Items used:
  • Nifty Fifties and Imagine More cartridges 
  • patterned paper from stash
  • A7 paper studio craft paper card base 
  • twine
  • pop-dots
  • "A stitch in time" frame cut from Imagine More at 4.5 inches
  • sewing machine cut at 2 inches from Nifty Fifties
  • ATG
  • Sentiment stamp for inside (not pictured), and Memento ink
How To:
  • I started by cutting my patterned paper down and adhering it to my card base using ATG
  • I then attached the frame to the card base using pop-dots.
  • Before adhering all layers of the sewing machine together, I added the twine to the spool of thread, and brought it down to the needle area to make it look like it was actually sewing something! I used some Zig glue to help keep the twine in place along the needle. 
  • The sewing machine is also attached to the card base using pop-dots. 
Hope you enjoyed!
